Phenomena in Space documents the small-format watercolors of German painter Anke Röhrscheid (born 1965), whose semi-abstract images of gray, spectral, tendril-like forms suspended against black backgrounds connote both dreamy, erotic intimacy and powerful existential isolation.

Cornelia Schleime: The Colour, the Body, the Face, the EyesCornelia Schleime: The Colour, the Body, the Face, the Eyes

Published by Kerber.
Edited and with text by Jean-Christophe Ammann, Anna Wesle.

German artist Cornelia Schleime’s (born 1953) most frequent subject is the female form, merging or coexisting with the kinds of animals one might expect to find in the European countryside--rabbits, deer, turtles and fish. Infused with a subtle eroticism, her paintings, drawings and watercolors exert a fascination that is amply conveyed in this monograph.

General Idea: A Retrospective 1969-1994General Idea: A Retrospective 1969-1994

Published by JRP|Ringier.
Edited by Frédéric Bonnet. Text by Jean-Christophe Ammann, AA Bronson, Louise Dompierre, Elisabeth Lebovici, David Moos.

General Idea was founded in Toronto in 1969 by Felix Partz, Jorge Zontal and AA Bronson as a generic identity to free the artists “from the tyranny of individual genius.” Under the leadership of their fictitious muse Miss General Idea, and inspired by William Burroughs' conception of the “image virus,” the collective interrogated media image culture through now legendary projects like File magazine, as well as paintings, installations, sculptures, mail art, photographs, videos, ephemera, TV programs and even a beauty pageant. General Idea came to an end in 1994, when Partz and Zontal died of AIDS. Today General Idea can be seen to anticipate the later art collectives of the 1970s as well as aspects of Relational Aesthetics in the 1990s. This volume presents an overview of the Canadian collective's bold mingling of reality and fiction and their frequently transgressive, parodic incursions upon both art and society. It traces such prevalent themes of their oeuvre as the mystique of the artist and the creative process, glamour as a creative tool, art's relationship to media and mass culture, architecture and archaeology, sexuality and AIDS. Including newly commissioned essays and reprinted texts, this volume is richly illustrated with documents and reproductions of the most significant projects realized by General Idea between 1969 and 1994.

Alighiero e Boetti: MappaAlighiero e Boetti: Mappa

Published by JRP|Ringier.
Text by Jean-Christophe Ammann.

A recent spate of exhibitions and an upcoming retrospective have drawn increased attention to the Italian Arte Povera pioneer Alighiero Boetti (or, in his identity-suturing guise, Alighiero e ["and"] Boetti) (1940-1994). Perhaps Boetti's best-known works are the textile maps of the world that he commissioned from female weavers in Afghanistan and Pakistan, beginning in 1971. In these maps, every country appears in the color and design of its national flag, and the borders are inscribed with texts of Boetti's devising along with statements from the local populace about their political aspects of their daily life. "I did nothing for this work," the artist has said, "chose nothing myself, in the sense that the world is shaped as it is, I did not draw it; the flags are what they are, I did not design them. In short I created absolutely nothing." This monograph on Boetti's now-classic cartographic pieces features 40 color images and an essay by Jean-Christophe Ammann.

Balthasar Burkhard: Scent Of DesireBalthasar Burkhard: Scent Of Desire

Published by Edizioni Periferia.
Text by Jean-Christophe Ammann.

Swiss photographer Balthasar Burkhard (born 1944) makes large-format pictures that bring out the general contours of a repertoire of subjects—primarily bodies and landscapes (both urban and rural)—which are presented in dramatically stark black-and-white contrast to create an effect of extreme formal reduction and breathtaking scale. In his well-known portraits of the Alps, for example, he elicits both delicate detail and epic monumentality from the mountainscape, projecting an atmosphere of forceful silence and enlarging the drama with painterly effects. For the viewer, Burkhard's images provoke a thrilling vertigo, as the eye roams to locate an anchor amid such vast scale. This beautiful two-volume set premiers Burkhard's new full-color work alongside the older black-and-white portrait and landscape photographs for which the artist is so well known. These recent color pictures of blossoms and plants convey an impressive sensual intensity, so palpable we can almost smell their scents.

Dieter Roth: The Rings of Dieter RothDieter Roth: The Rings of Dieter Roth

Supplement

Published by Edizioni Periferia.
Text by Jean-Christophe Ammann.

In 1958, on a visit to Iceland, Dieter Roth met the Swiss goldsmith Hans Langenbacher, and the two soon agreed to collaborate. Roth came up with the brilliant idea of devising rings with exchangeable parts--a variety of brightly-colored corkscrew-like attachments to the ring's main body--which Roth then housed in containers such as old pipes or wooden boxes. This gem of a volume reproduces Roth's rings alongside sketches, photos and a lengthy interview with Langenbacher; it is an intimate and inspiring addition to the Roth corpus.

In Sook Kim: Saturday NightIn Sook Kim: Saturday Night

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Text by Jean-Christophe Ammann, Thomas Wagner.

The photographs of In Sook Kim (born 1969 in South Korea) examine how we give meaning to the rooms we live in, how we use furniture, décor, television, computers, sex, alcohol and pharmaceuticals in our futile attempts to fill inner voids--and how those rooms reflect these voids back at us. Kim's Edward Hopper-esque settings are constructed with a loving attention to detail, and lit with an eerie glow, so that they function as deliberately artificial mini-theatres in which human subjects seem intrusive or uneasy, perhaps imprisoned by society's designation of Saturday night as party night. These works were recently exhibited at New York's Gana Art Gallery, to much acclaim.

Eric Fischl: It's Where I Look...It's How I See...Their World, My World, the WorldEric Fischl: It's Where I Look...It's How I See...Their World, My World, the World

Published by Mary Boone Gallery/ Jablonka Gallery.
Text by Jean-Christophe Ammann, Geoffrey Young, Francesco Clemente, Richard Prince.

The paintings in Eric Fischl's Krefeld Project depict a middle-aged couple in the throes of a long-term relationship, isolated but together, bored but bound. Made from photographs of hired models who inhabited a rented house for four days while the artist snapped more than 2,000 pictures, the paintings show the couple before and after sex, in the shower and brushing teeth, on the toilet and on the phone. According to essayist and poet Geoffrey Young, "Fischl shows flickers of desire, but more frequently he notices the ways in which a couple exists in the same room, without contact. Hopperesque in their silence, the pictures are so confidently and technically alive that even these models fronting as a couple are redeemed in their uncertainty, acknowledged in their isolation, encouraged in their effort to spark the flint to feel it all again, the passion that is only rarely given to them."

Text by Jean-Christophe Ammann, Ulrike Münter, Marc Spiegler.

In 2006, The New York Times' art critic Roberta Smith described Art Basel Miami as, "…a decentralized sprawling mass of excitement and display, plus lots of disposable wealth. It is the art world's version of Mardi Gras." The Miami fair's more established European partner, Art Basel, has been described as "the Olympics of the art world," and "a modern art mecca" by The New York Times and the Wall Street Journal respectively. Add to these the Venice Biennale, Documenta, Skulptur Projekte Münster, the Armory show, SITE Santa Fe, the Whitney, Liverpool, Sao Paolo, Berlin, Sharjah, Sydney, Beijing, Prague and Istanbul biennials and dozens of other international fairs seemingly proliferating without check, and you have a pretty accurate depiction of the state of the roving art world epicenter today. For years, Berlin photographer Gabriele Heidecker has documented the key moments, players and artworks of this evolving phenomenon. Produced to accompany the 2007 Art Basel Miami fair, this probing photographic study includes analytic essays by a consortium of experts in the field.

Matthias Weischer: MalereiMatthias Weischer: Malerei

Painting

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Edited by Markus Stegmann. Text by Rudij Bergmann. Interview by Jean-Christophe Ammann.

The young Leipzig painter Matthias Weischer, born in 1973, depicts suburban interiors that can appear at once pleasantly furnished and ominously vacated. Abstract patterns in wallpaper or carpet suggest households that have been lovingly attended to, but Weischer invests this decor with an oddly noisy insistence, so that its sheer "effect" invades any space a human presence might occupy. Often an entire ceiling or a part of a wall is omitted, so that Weischer's homes quickly come to seem absurdly staged, like sets that are wholly indifferent to habitation. Subtle perspectival collisions and a frequently clinical treatment of light compound these atmospheres of banal anxiety, and Weischer's impasto paint application further intensifies the claustrophobic pressure--even while imparting his evident enjoyment in detailing ornamental effect. The artist's conceptual preoccupations are consistent, but the emotional nuances of his paintings vary greatly. With over 200 color plates, this is an impressive catalogue raisonné for one of the Leipzig School's most promising stars.

Francesco Clemente: Works 1971-1979Francesco Clemente: Works 1971-1979

Published by Charta/Deitch Projects.
Text by Jean-Christophe Ammann.

The Italian-born painter Francesco Clemente came to prominence in the mid-1970s when intensely subjective yet universal themes filtered into his skewed self-portraiture, witty wordplay and gestural figuration. This volume compiles a decade's worth of works on paper from those early days, many of which were inspired by Italy's political crisis at the time or fellow artists Alighiero Boetti and Luigi Ontani.
The Italian artists of the 1970s were working in the context of the "terrorist generation." There was a crisis of capitalism and of Western societal values--both of which informed such major ideas in Clemente's early work as "fragmentation of self" and the "refutation of reason." Suddenly the body became a territory for artistic exploration; it became a border and led to the idea of travel. Here Clemente learned to trust geography over history, and his highly personal symbolism of the time bears proof of an itinerant life spent between homes in Madras (current-day Chennai, India), New York and Rome, with many trips to Dehli, Srinagar and various areas of Afghanistan mixed in.
Published on the occasion of Clemente's recent exhibition at New York's Deitch Projects, this deluxe volume highlights the artist's concerns with process and concept--not technical perfection--and his obsession with paper's ephemeral vulnerability. Hints of Clemente's later forays into Surrealism and deep human psychology are also evident, and provide an essential view of the beginning of a masterful career.

As Olbricht writes in the epilogue, 'Collecting art, for me, is an elixir of life÷ Seemingly anything goes and nothing is sure. This productive restlessness makes collecting a great adventure--that's one thing this picture book is meant to tell; another thing is that, for me, the variety of positions I'm continuously concerning myself with combines to become a cosmos full of life.' Contains an illustrated appendix and an introduction by Jean-Christophe Ammann.

Richard ArtschwagerRichard Artschwager

Published by Domaine de Kerguehennec.
Essays by Jean-Christophe Ammann, Patrick Javault and Frédéric Paul.

Richard Artschwager writes: “To make art, artists are like thieves, watching for a door left open. At the beginning of the 1960s, I painted a chair on a chair. I painted a chest of drawers on a chest of drawers. A hopeless entanglement of painting and sculpture. Is that what I was looking for? Minimal Art, Pop art... artists learn from other artists but desperately want their art to be unique... But the categories happen. The sense that there is such a thing as sets is at least 50,000 years old. But in your time and when it comes to art, the encounter should be naked, naïve and free of prejudgment (such as classification). My originality, if any, lies in good part in paradoxes: useful/useless, object/image, etc.” This volume is a comprehensive full-color documentation of the artist's paintings/sculptures/furniture.

Xl Photography 2

Art Collection Deutsche Börse

Published by Hatje Cantz Publishers.
Essay by Jean-Christophe Ammann

The German Stock Exchange in Frankfurt, headquartered in Germany and Luxembourg, has significantly extended its collection of photographs in the last year, acquiring primarily large-format works by upcoming artists. Hence the necessity to produce XL Photography 2, sequel to the two-year-old XL Photography. This volume features photographers who employ an unparalleled range of modes of design and expression, spanning the rather classical black-and-white photographs of Nicholas Nixon and the cool color photographs of Stephen Shore, as well as the innovative One-Minute Sculptures of Erwin Wurm. Under the artistic guidance of Jean-Christophe Ammann, the photographic collection of the German Stock Exchange in Frankfurt places established artists such as Bernd & Hilla Becher, SebastiÑo Selgado, Philip-Lorca diCorcia, Rineke Dijkstra, Roni Horn, and Jrgen Teller next to younger, as yet-undiscovered talents. This luxuriously designed, large-scale picture book represents all significant positions taken by photography in the past ten years.

Marlene Dumas: Wet DreamsMarlene Dumas: Wet Dreams

Watercolors

Published by Hatje Cantz Publishers.
Edited by Thomas Knubben and Tilman Osterwold. Essays by Jean-Christophe Ammann, Thomas Knubben and Marlene Dumas.

The oeuvre of Marlene Dumas is primarily characterized by her watercolors. Suggestive works, they appear to be based mostly on photographs from magazines which Dumas blurs, crops, or distorts. In doing so, the artist explores the sexualized dynamics between the picture, the painter, and the viewer. Her always openly sensual representations of human bodies and faces deal with some of the questions central to life. Wet Dreams features a broad selection of Dumas' loaded and expressive watercolors, expanding on the primary topics found throughout her work: the clichª picture of the female, the relations between the sexes, role playing, sexuality and pornography, guilt and violence, birth and death. Specially featured here are a number of collaborative works which the artist created with her daughter and with the painter Bert Boogaard.

Alex Katz: First SightAlex Katz: First Sight

Published by Peter Blum Edition, New York.
Essay by Jean-Christophe Ammann.

In the more than 500 working drawings by Alex Katz reproduced here, we are able to look over the artist's shoulder at works in their nascent state--a rare experience essential to any understanding of the artist's oeuvre. Like a sculptor's preparatory drawings, these are the sketches of a painter who is not a draftsman but a painter; they are the raw material, revealing Katz's methods of looking and recording. Contours, overlappings, movements and attitudes are put to paper ever so quickly, with observation given top priority. Subject development, composition and memory are all elements that come about afterwards, when the artist takes up the paintbrush and moves to the canvas. First Sight contains a vast array of previously unpublished sketches and drawings, printed here in facsimile, at a scale of 1:1, and spanning the entire career of the artist, from 1950 to the present. The book is a limited edition of 1000 copies.

Arte PoveraArte Povera

In Collection

Published by Charta.
Edited by Ida Gianelli. Contributors include Jean-Christophe Ammann, Germano Celant. Artists include Giovanni Anselmo, Alighiero e Boetti, Luciano Fabro, Jannis Kounellis, Mario Merz, Marisa Merz, Giulio Paolini, Giuseppe Penone, Michelangelo Pistoletto.

The Arte Povera movement, similar to other movements of its time such as Conceptual Art and Process Art, brought about a radical redefinition of art itself, and provided an alternative to the increasingly hegemonic art trends of the day. Arte Povera: In Collection examines a significant nucleus of historical works of the Arte Povera movement from three important collections: the Museum of Contemporary Art Castello di Rivoli, the Galleria d'arte Moderna in Turin, and the recent acquisitions of the Fondazione CRT in Turin. Included here are 90 works by the protagonists of the Arte Povera movement: Giovanni Anselmo, Alighiero Boetti, Pier Paolo Calzolari, Luciano Fabro, Jannis Kounellis, Mario Merz, Marisa Merz, Giulio Paolini, Giuseppe Penone, Michelangelo Pistoletto and Gilberto Zorio. The book focuses on these artists' classic works from the 60s and 70s, but also includes some recent work from each artist. In addition, the book features new, unpublished essays by each of the artists (except for the deceased Boetti), and historical texts by major art critics Tommaso Trini, Harold Szeemann, Jean Christophe Amman, and of course Germano Celant, who coined the term ''Arte Povera'' in 1967.

Words Of Wisdom: A Curator's Vade MecumWords Of Wisdom: A Curator's Vade Mecum

Published by Independent Curators International, New York.
Edited by Carin Kuoni. Essays by Jean-Christophe Ammann, Carlos Basualdo, René Block, Francesco Bonami, Dan Cameron, Lynne Cooke, Bice Curiger, Donna De Salvo, Richard Flood, Thelma Golden, Yuko Hasegawa, Jean-Hubert Martin, Gerardo Mosquera, Hans Ulrich Obrist.

A modern update of the Medieval trade manuals--the 'come-along-with-me' (vade mecum) of Medieval craftsmen--Words of Wisdom: A Curator's Vade Mecum is an invaluable guidebook for anyone interested in contemporary art and the practice of curating. In over fifty short essays, this compendium offers advice to a new generation of curators from veterans of contemporary art exhibitions who, over the past 25 years, have played a crucial role in shaping what we see today, and how we see it. While providing an intimate look at the minds of these master curators, Words of Wisdom also establishes the curator's craft as an important vocation that has changed tremendously over the past quarter-century. In the course of their musings, the curators offer behind-the-scenes insights into influential exhibitions and institutions and the contemporary art world they represent. Among the contributors are Jean-Christophe Amman, director of the Museum of Modern Art, Frankfurt, Germany; Donna de Salvo, curator at the Tate Gallery, London; Richard Flood, chief curator at the Walker Arts Center, Minneapolis; independent curator Hans Ulrich Obrist; and Marcia Tucker, founding director of the New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York.
